Discovery Scanner - 28/11/2022

Greetings Commanders,

What a week ahead in the Elite Dangerous Galaxy, for sure. Here's hoping you had a good week just passed - let's jump right into what is essentially an 'Update 14' special of this week's Discovery Scanner.

Game News


  • 5:00 - In game broadcasting of 'server downtime warning'.
  • 7:00 - Both Horizons only and Odyssey Servers go down (update notes released via web and 'Release Tracker' style forum thread at around this time).
  • 15:00 - Servers return. Update 14 Deployment will be live.


  • Horizons Only Update 14 : 164.7 MB
  • Odyssey Update 14 : 4.8 GB
  • Total combined update size : 4.9 GB (Updates combined only. ONLY if you have already installed the full 4.0 game client in advance).

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have not installed a full download of the 4.0 game client in advance of tomorrow's update 14 deployment, the client itself, minus the update 14 download size, is around the 50 GB mark. You may wish to do this prior to Update 14 release if you have yet to do so.

Full update notes will be shared tomorrow, just ahead of or alongside server downtime.

The following schedule is posted for discussion in the Official Elite Dangerous Forum at the following link.

Please do keep an eye on our official social channels and in the Elite Dangerous Forum from 7:00 tomorrow morning as we keep you up to date on release proceedings.



In line with Update 14 releasing tomorrow, last week we released important information regarding Update 14 and Beyond: "Live and Legacy Modes".

It's encouraged that you familiarise yourself with this information as it's crucial to the forward movement of Elite Dangerous, following tomorrow's update.

You can find all the information you need in the following article: Elite Dangerous Update 14 and Beyond: Live and Legacy Modes - Elite Dangerous: Odyssey


Frameshift Live #22 

Join us this Thursday from 16:00 UTC where we will be recapping the excitement brought along with Update 14, featuring two special developer guests to talk more in depth on the design and content behind the deployment.

Drops will be available for those viewing via Twitch as usual.
